Dream-Casting a Live-Action Little Mermaid for Disney

Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...


(Written by: @JeremyWilson412) I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up in a shark costume convinced it was a dolphin costume. I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up who hooked up with Nick at Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The Top 10 Things in Entertainment for 2016


2016 has largely been seen as a bad year, with one of the prominent reasons being the passing of so many artists and celebrities. While it certainly was painful to lose talents like Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, and dozens of others, those ends didn’t take away from the Read more

Josh and Andi

The Bachelorette finale is in the books. The journey is over. Andi found true love and happiness, and Nick’s hand-drawn storybook found the nearest dumpster in the Dominican Republic.

But before we move on, I need to take care of two things. Read more

Jack and Chloe

With the conclusion of another season of 24 (perhaps the last we’ll ever see of Jack Bauer?), we bring in some longtime fans to discuss the finale, where the series may go from here, and how well this season lived up to the 24 we have come to know and love.

The Bachelorette: Meet the Fellas

Opening night has come and gone. 25 desperate men made the nerve-racking walk from the limo to greet their hopeful bride-to-be, Andi, and five of those men were sent packing… some more emotional than others, (cough) Josh B (cough).

As far as opening nights go, this one was pretty tame, and tame is a nice way of saying boring. Let’s give it a 6/10 – three points for the awkward limo entrances, and three points for the season previews we saw after the show. After all, the season previews are the most important aspect of the first episode.

Bauer Breakdown: 24 Season 9, Hour 3

Bauer Tube

With the return of 24, Joseph is living out his dream of covering a season of Jack Bauer saving humanity from blood-thirsty terrorists of every race and creed week-by-week on the blog. Catch up with last week’s roundtable discussing the two-hour premiere and enjoy this week as Jeremy Wilson and Joseph Williams share their thoughts on the latest time-ticking hour of 24: Live Another Day.

Jeremy Wilson

Another week of 24 is in the books, and they continue to cruise right on with their old tricks. We saw Jack and Chloe teaming up with traffic cameras to find a perp, the CIA staying just a step or two slower than Bauer, and a gut-wrenching minute of stitches being applied to a fresh wound. Surely the stitches are just to get us prepared for some torture scenes further down the road.

We also learned last night who is really running the country – Heller’s chief of staff, Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan). Through three episodes/hours, Mark has shown that he is the puppet master to a president who is losing his mind – quite literally – and last night he went as far as to forge Heller’s signature. I can’t wait until Bauer swoops in wearing his aviators and leather jacket and steals Audrey from him, but we are several hours away from that scene.

An important part of last night’s episode was the introduction to the terrorists. What an odd group! A redheaded British woman and former wife of a deceased Taliban leader and her house of misfits are preparing to let Hell rain from the sky down on ten of London’s most popular venues. By the way, she’s definitely going to kill her own daughter, right? She held off the urge last night, but the gravedigger can go ahead and grab his favorite shovel, because it’s a done deal.

With the return of Jack Bauer and 24 with Fox’s new “special-event 12 hour mini-series” 24: Live Another Day, The Wise Guise and friends have some thoughts. Some of us watched 24 from the moment it premiered in Fall 2001 while others caught up on DVD/Netflix and some (Palmer) had never seen an episode. Here are the thoughts on the season’s first two hours… enjoy!
